of a controversial pick, chuck hagel for defense secretary replacing leon panetta. >> that's the more controversial of the nominees so far. it's interesting because he is a republican and usually when presidents nominate members of the other party, that party doesn't complain very much but in the case of hagel many in his own party think he's too liberal and his stance on israel are not in accord with the rest of the party. so there is some concern that maybe he may be too controversial a pick. if hi to bet, i think he probably will be confirmed. obviously the other big name is john kerry being nominated for secretary of state replacing hillary clinton and the speculation is that he will sail through and there won't be too much trouble with that nomination. >> now, how quickly can we expect these confirmations? >> you know, there's no telling how quickly some of these will go especially in the case of hagel. there may be debate. i think in the case of kerry it will be very quickly. if i had to bet, probably much of the debate over hagel will take place in the press before the vot
